Storyline

Ever wonder how on earth somebody actually becomes a professional wrestler? It's a lot less glamorous than you might think... Over the last several decades, for 20 bucks a night in front of crowds of less than 100, the "stars" of the Tri-Cities International Championship Wrestling Federation (TCICWF) have been trying to make it to the big time by performing their own campy brand of sports entertainment. In the process, they have inadvertently offended just about everybody in town. And now that the TCICWF is shutting down forever, these colorful, eccentric, clueless, indie wrestlers have one last chance to show the world that they belong in the big leagues. Kayfabe pulls no punches while revealing the hilarious absurdities of independent professional wrestling. Written by Michael Raven

A Fantastic Film for Marks and Workers by Marks and Workers
11 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is what a wrestling comedy SHOULD BE. It knows who its audience is and it plays to them really well. Not to worry, if you aren't a fan as they explain most of the terms used in the business.

The overall plot revolves around documentary filming TCICWF, an independent fed on its final days, and the shenanigans that occur.

The main characters are "The Rocket" Randy Tyler (the top heel, or bad guy), Steve Justice (top babyface, or good guy), and Al Thompson (promoter and living legend). Of course there is a whole roster of talent, but I'll let you discover them on your own.

The "soundtrack" is also good, being provided by punk band Knucklehead. This is a subjective thing, but I believe their music works rather well as entrance themes.

The only bad thing I can say is that the one trope of the indy scene not covered in this film are the no selling high fliers. Aside from that, this is a really great movie. It never drags, the characters are fleshed out, and the soundtrack is great. This is a MUST OWN for any wrestling fan.
